Stepping Forward into Managing a Community Asset

January 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

An invaluable overview of all the main points to be considered

With the current opportunities available to Community Groups, Voluntary Organizations and Social Enterprises to take responsibility for the management of Community Facilities through the People Make Glasgow Communities programme and Community Asset Transfer process, this is an excellent overview of the challenges, responsibilities and positive outcomes which will be faced.

In this interactive session, participants will consider the following questions:

  • What are Community Assets and how do they benefit the community?
  • How are Community Assets managed and what are the issues surrounding this?
  • What is Community Asset Transfer process and how does the application process work?
  • What is the People Make Glasgow Communities (PMGC) programme and application process?

The session will be facilitated by the GCVS Development Officer for Community Empowerment & Facilities, and there will be additional input from Martin Wright, Community Services Manager at Glasgow Life who currently manage many of the Glasgow community facilities.

Please note this is an online event. You will be required to register with Zoom before you can join. This is a free and simple process but does take a few minutes. Please do this at your convenience before the day of the event.
